I have eaten here about 4 times over the last 3 years. A staple of the neighborhood for a nicer meal. Lunch, when they offer it is a great deal with more of a comida corida style. Night time a bit more formal. The place has wonderful charm with multiple dining rooms. The meals are okay... nothing spectacular but with... More

We first discovered this place 7 years ago, by a recommendation and we go every time we get to Puerto Vallarta! Great atmosphere, great food and great hospitality. They always give us something to try for free and we always enjoy everything we eat. It is off the beaten path but you can walk or get a taxi, we never... More

The food was so delicious and the service was phenomenal. The drinks were amazing too! Actually our taxi driver recommended this place to us as one of his favorites! It became one of ours too!

Encanto is one of those hidden gems that people will miss out on if they haven't been told about it or read about it. It's in a Mexican neighborhood, in a quaint little house. The menu is small but has something for everyone. Don't miss trying the corn cakes. They melt in your mouth. The mahi mahi special was delicious.... More

Being greeted like a regular at a restaurant we visit once a year - our cab is greeted - we receive hugs from our waiter and are escorted to our desired table without asking. the delicious house appetizers appear like magic - excellent drinks follow. Smiles and laughter abound. Encanto is truly special. I recommend ordering what your host recommends... More

This was our first time eating at Encanto to but it won't be our last. Everything was perfect- the food, the wine, the service, the atmosphere. This place is now in our " must eat at" list in PV.

This is our second time eating here. The service is terrific. What we like about the service is you are never rushed. When we were seated we were served salsa and chips and then our drink order was taken. After our drinks were served then we were given our menus. Very nice touch. We were comped both an appetizer (peach... More

Great food and service and lots of local color. The restaurant in an old house located in old town. Our cab driver had to ask around in order to find it. So be sure to have the address and phone number, just in case. The décor is not fancy but very interesting…somewhat Mexican eclectic. My wife had coconut shrimp and... More

My favorite restaurant in PV. We've been coming here at least once, sometimes multiple times for dinner. In all the years we've been there we've never had a bad dish. The owner and staff are extremely nice people. If you want something different from the typical tourist restaurant, this is the place to go!

Encanto has become one of our favorite restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. We visited it again a couple of weeks ago to find that the service is still every bit as wonderful and the food delicious. It is located in an old house, in an airy setting with pastel colors and creative lighting, white tablecloths. The waiter (Enrique, the father of... More
